Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 2

Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model

So I found a devotional that was a bit longer and that sounded powerful as a message so that it could help us learn and become the dads God created and purposed for us to be. So I chose “Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model” because, over 21 days, we will get to read and learn about how to be a positive Christian role model for our family! Over 21 days, we will get to learn about topics like: “self-discipline, love, patience, and much more“! This devotional will not only help us be the dads but it will also help us “in our day-to-day life to show our children what it truly means to be a role model and follower of Christ in every sense“.

Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:

‘When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. And he took the calf the people had made and burned it in the fire; then he ground it to powder, scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it. He said to Aaron, “What did these people do to you, that you led them into such great sin?” “Do not be angry, my lord,” Aaron answered. “You know how prone these people are to evil. They said to me, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’ So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!” Moses saw that the people were running wild and that Aaron had let them get out of control and so become a laughingstock to their enemies. ‘

Exodus 32:19-25

Ever needed that nudge, that insight, that wisdom, that understanding, that reason? Ever turned to God’s Word and had it land right before you? Ever turned to God’s Word because you couldn’t figure it out? Ever been amazed at what you discovered?

Ever seen something happening and it caused you to lose it? Ever experienced a situation where anything and everything is going off the rails? Ever had to confront the situation or the person about what they had done? Ever been that person? Ever received excuses for why it happened? Ever taken responsibility or accountability for your role in it? Ever come up with an idea in the heat of the moment and then realized later it caused things to go off the rails? Were you able to invite God into the situation to help you wrangle everyone and get the situation under control?
